The Young Foundation
Remote with a London base
Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

We are a not for profit research organisation, working with communities, organisations and policymakers. We support locally-led action, building knowledge around the issues people tell us they care about. We work collaboratively to improve lives and address shared challenges, driving social change for stronger communities and a fairer future.

The Role

Thank you for your interest in joining our Board at a time of significant change, renewal and opportunity. 

As an influential driving force and true pioneer in our field, we’re looking for six new Trustees to join us. We want to build the best non-executive team we can and are particularly interested in hearing from candidates from across the UK who can offer depth of insight, experience or influence in one or more of the following: higher education; centre progressive Conservative and other political networks; social impact investment; finance (an accountancy qualification would be an asset); community action; an opinion former or someone with a deep external affairs and influencing background.

Our trustees bring all of their experiences into our Board room. While we do have priority areas to address in our skillset, we’re interested in a fully and authentically diverse board, and in people who can bring the lived experiences needed to enable decisions based on a complete picture of life in the UK.
